Apex Legends player u/realPipes has designed three new grenades to shake up the game's throwable meta.
Apex Legends currently offers players three throwable weapons: the standard frag grenade, the area-controlling Thermite Grenade and the shield-shattering Arc Star. Unsatisfied with those options, realPipes has created three grenade mockups: the Sonic Grenade, the Flash Grenade and the Sticky Mine.
Unlike the grenades already in Apex Legends, the Sonic Grenade and the Flash Grenade wouldn't deal damage. Instead, the former would mute all sound and remove pings for five seconds while the latter would blind players for two seconds. The Flash Grenade would also be restricted to indoor use.
RealPipes' third design, the Sticky Mine, would be a motion-activated bomb that can be set on floors and walls. Each player could only have one active at a time, and it would self destruct after eight seconds of inactivity.
It's improbable Respawn Entertainment would implement any of these designs exactly, but there's certainly room in-game for some new throwables.
